Hello stampers crafters and friends, I hope that you are having a wonderful day.  As I am getting ready for OnStage Local in Savannah this weekend, I am sharing cards that inspire me.   Today I am sharing a real quick and easy card with you featuring the Cool Treats, and Tasty Treats Specialty Designer Series Paper.  Here’s a look at my card today.

Cool Treats Photopolymer Stamp Set, Tasty Treats Specality Designer Series Paper, Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon, Stampin' Up!, #rickadkins, #rckinsmonstudio

When I first created this card I put in a Chocolate Popsicle, but in the video I changed it up a little and created a peach popsicle.   I wanted to change things up a little bit, and step things up a little for the video.   My first card was created with just stamps ink and paper, for a quick and easy card.   My second card was stepped up just a little to so you how to take the same card and add just a few little things and step it up.   For example I added a pear pizzazz mat and a little ribbon, to create a totally different look.

The first card that I created for this tutorial was created as a top folding Card that was meant to be very simple and quick and easy for people to reproduce.  With this card I created three Popsicles  with one being a Chocolate, strawberry and a blueberry one.

To step up the card a little bit, I used the same supplies but added a mat in Pear Pizzazz around the focal image.  This will draw attention to the image.  Next I added a bow using the Flirty Flamingo Ruched Ribbon.  My Popsicles were also changed up a little I changed the Chocolate one to a peach one.
